Learn Python through Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Tales
This book by Shari Eskenas uses nursery rhymes and fairy tales as fun contexts to explain Python's coding fundamentals to kids ages 10-18.

Each page corresponds to its own story, a colorful world in which Python can be used to recount a tale. Near the end of the book, the user is walked through installing Python for themselves and trying out some of the provided code. Coding knowledge applies to engineering as a whole, developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills which are useful in any discipline. 

Nursery rhymes are a fun way to get younger children interested in coding concepts and can pique interest in the huge world it encompasses. - K. R. Schieltz, Purdue Reviewer
